  • Publication number: 20180013998
    Abstract: Examples associated with relationship preserving projection of digital objects are disclosed. One example includes identifying suitable locations within a physical space for projection of digital objects. The digital objects may be stored in a virtual space. A representation of a first digital object from the virtual space may be projected onto a first suitable location in the physical space and a representation of a second digital object from the virtual space may be projected onto a second suitable location in the physical space. The first suitable location and the second suitable location may preserve a spatial relationship between the first digital object and the second digital object.

  • Publication number: 20170221268
    Abstract: Examples relate to behavior tracking and modification using mobile augmented reality. In some examples, a navigation request for a route to a destination location is received from a user, and a data stream associated with the user is obtained. A first waypoint is identified based on the data stream and first waypoint metadata of a number of waypoint metadata that each include recognition cues for identifying a corresponding waypoint. An orientation of the user is determined based on the data stream and the recognition cues in the first waypoint metadata. A second waypoint is determined based on the characteristics in second waypoint metadata, and a guidance overlay is generated for display to the user based on the orientation, where the guidance overlay specifies a direction and a distance to the second waypoint.

  • Publication number: 20170201721
    Abstract: Systems and methods associated with artifact projection are disclosed. One example method includes generating a first digital object in a virtual space. The first digital object may correspond to a first artifact in a first physical space. The method also includes recording attributes of the first artifact as the attributes change over time. The attributes may be recorded in association with the first digital object. The method also includes projecting a representation of the first digital object into a second space. The representation may be generated based on of the first artifact at a first selected time.

  • Publication number: 20170116333
    Abstract: Example implementations relate to automatic association of content from sources. For example, a computing device may include a processor. The processor may identify a content item being related to a particular source of a plurality of sources accessible by the computing device, where each source of the plurality of sources is independent from other sources in the plurality of sources. The content item is sent to a server managing relationships between content from the plurality of sources, where the server automatically associates the content item with other relevant content items from the plurality of sources. Information identifying the other relevant content items is received from the server. The content item is displayed with the other relevant content items in response to receiving the information.

  • Publication number: 20170074672
    Abstract: An example waypoint navigator method includes identifying a local waypoint using image recognition on an image of the local waypoint displayed on a mobile device. The example method also includes overlaying on the image of the local waypoint, a visual direction to the remote waypoint based on identifying the local waypoint, the visual direction based on context. The example method also includes updating the visual direction based on changes in the context.

  • Publication number: 20160342953
    Abstract: Systems and methods associated with calendar scheduling are disclosed. One example method includes generating a first calendar event based on an input received from a user. The method also includes assigning a priority to the first calendar event. The method also includes selecting a second calendar event to reschedule based on a priority of the second calendar event and the priority of the first calendar event. The method also includes scheduling the first calendar event in a time slot at least partially overlapping a time slot previously associated with the second calendar event. The method also includes modifying the priority of the first calendar event over time to deter rescheduling of the first calendar event.

  • Publication number: 20150243817
    Abstract: A solar antenna array may comprise an array of randomly placed carbon nanotube antennas that may capture and convert sunlight into electrical power. Methods for constructing the solar antenna array may use a mold and self aligning processing steps to minimize cost. Designs may be optimized for capturing a broad spectrum of non-polarized light. Alternatively, the array may generate light, and when connected in to an array of independently controllable sections may operate as either a reflective or light transmitting display.

  • Patent number: 8771292
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to an apparatus and method for the stabilization and fastening of two pieces of tissue. A single device may be used to both stabilize and fasten the two pieces of tissue, or a separate stabilizing device may be used in conjunction with a fastening device. After the pieces of tissue are stabilized, they are fastened together using sutures or clips. One exemplary embodiment of a suture-based fastener comprises a needle connected to a suture. The needle enters the blind side of the tissue and exits the front side. The suture is then tied in a knot to secure the pieces of tissue. One example of a clip-based fastener comprises a spring-loaded clip having two arms with tapered distal ends and barbs. The probe includes a deployment mechanism which causes the clip to pierce and lockingly secure the two pieces of tissue.
